Description

United States Patent CARBOXYLIC-NITRILE-VINYL ETHER COATING ggglPOSITIONS, PROCESS AND COATED PROD- Gerald P. Roeser, Fallsington, Pa., assignor, by mesne assignments, to American-Marietta Company, Stoner- %udg e Co. Division, Chicago, 111., a corporation of rnors No Drawing. Application October 26, 1955 Serial No. 543,009
17 Claims. (Cl. 117-103) This invention relates to resinous polymers, and to their use for sanitary protective coatings on containers on closures for foods and beverages, and other applications. This application is a continuation-in-part of my application Serial No. 269,326, filed January 31, 1952, now abandoned.
Sanitary coatings are required for successful packing of foods and beverages in containers. A coating for that purpose may be a single coating, or a finish, size or other coating in a series of successively baked on multiple coatings, and may be applied to a backplate, tinplate, aluminum or other metal surface on the interior or exterior of a container or closure for foods or beverages or the like. The commercial practice of reducing the thickness of tin coatings to a minimum increasingly places a premium on developing high quality coating composition which can protect the underlying steel base, since the steel base is more susceptible than tin to chemical attack, and must be protected againstsuch attack wherever there might happen to be a break in the continuity of the tin coating. Among the important characteristics sought in sanitary coating compositions are solubility in common solvents, with low viscosity and good flow properties at substantial solids concentrations; thermal stability capable of withstanding high baking temperatures and successive bakings when multiple coatings are applied; dry adherence and flexibility when coated on metal sheets, so that the coating will adhere and not rupture when the sheet is precoated and subsequently fabricated into containers, closures or other articles; adherence under wet as well as dry conditions when coated on metal; the property of not imparting flavor to the contents of a container when used as an interior coating on the container or closure; and the ability to withstand the effects of pasteurization, sterilization and other forms of preservation by heat, such as steam processing, when used as an interior co-atin on a container or closure. The coating should also have sufficient thermal stability to withstand the heat of soldering operations on adjacent portions of the article on which it is coated. Although various known polymers have particularly good properties with respect to various ones of the above stated requirements, it is nevertheless recognized that it is ditiicuit to develop coating. compositions which achieve a satisfactory balance of the desired properties, and that it is particularly difficult to develop coatings which have l) the useful qualities of insolubility and infusibility charactcristic of thermosetting resins, and also (2) sufiicient flexiblity, adherence and tenacity to survive intact when precoated on a metal sheet which is subsequently shaped and drawn, as in the case of fabrication into containers, closures or other articles.
The polymers of the invention provide sanitary coatings having an improved balance and combination of qualities, including flexibility and tenacity suited for fabrication, and insolubility and stability affording high chemical and heat resistance. Yention are thermosetting per se, i. e., the application The polymers of the in- 2,873,212 Patented Feb. 10, 1959 ice of heat cross-links the chains of the polymers, and there by sets or cures the polymers, without the aid of any additional agent. Before they thermoset the poly mers are fusible and soluble, so that they can readily be applied in solution, and after they thermoset the polymers become relatively insoluble and infusible, and chemically inert. A further characteristic of importance lies in the fact that metal surfaces coated with the cured polymers of theinvention can be soldered together readily, without interference from the coating, as would be expected in the case ofthe usual baked-on coatings, especially those which areconsidered to be thermosetting.
The polymers of the invention consist of the following three components in the following proportions:
(1) Component A, in proportions of about] 563 mole; percent, consisting of the following alpha-beta ethylenically unsaturated carboxylic acids and anhydrides and mixtures thereof;
Acrylic acid Methacrylic acid Itaconic acid Crotonic acid. Monobutyl maleate Monomethyl maleate Maleic anh'ydride Itaconic anhydride (2) Component B, in proportions of about 32-64 mole percent, consisting of the following alpha-beta unsaturated nitrile compounds and mixtures thereof:
Acrylonitrile Fumaronitrile The above proportional limits were determined on the basis of tests both inside and outside of the specified limits for the purpose of determining the ranges of proportionswhich produce successful sanitary coatings meeting the above described requirements. I have found the following adverse etfectswhen the specifiedlimits are exceeded (the test methods are described in a later portion of the specification):
(l) ComponentAr If desired substantially below 5 mole percent, there is evidently not enough cross-linking with component B, and tests for process blush become unsatisfactory. 1
(2) Component A: If. increased substantially above 63 mole percent, the excess carboxylic acid content makes the coating too hydrophylic, and process blush tests become unsatisfactory; also, the viscosity is such asto require. stronger solvents, and fabrication tests of the coating become unsatisfactory."
(3) Component B: If decreased substantially below 32 mole percent, there is evidently insufficient crosslinking with component A; specifically, process blush tests become unsatisfactory.
(4) Component B: lf' increased substantially above 64 mole percent, the polar attraction of the polymer chains evidently become too great; specifically, fabrication tests become unsatisfactory,.and the viscosity becomes such as to require very strong solvents.
(5) Component C: If decreased substantially below 2 mole percent, the internal plasticizing action of component C evidently becomes too little; specifically, fabrication tests become unsatisfactory, and the viscosity becomes such as to require stronger solvents.
(6) Component C: If increased substantially above 38 mole percent, the other components A and B are evidently diluted excessively so that they do not crosslink and cure sufiiciently, with the result that the coating tests in general becomeunsatisfactory, particularly process blush and acetone resistance.
j The above-listed difierent species of the components A and B are substitutable for each other on a molar percentage basis for the purposes of the invention. The above-listed species of component C are also substitutable on a molar percentage basis, but for best results I prefer to use relatively large amounts'of lower molecular Weight species of component C and to substitute the higher vinyl ether for the lower'vinyl e ther on a weight percentage basis. Substituting in that manner produces more uniform results, since the higher vinyl ether tend to soften the polymer, and substituting on a weight basis has the effect .of reducing the molar proportions as higher vinyl e'thers' are substituted, with a resultant offsetting of their softening effect;
The polymer of the invention is preferably produced with the aid of a catalyst in order to reduce the reaction time, but a catalyst is .not essential to the reaction. Azodiisobutylronitrile is an example of a useful catalyst for the purpose, in proportions by Weight of 0.5 to 5% of thecombined weight of the components A, B and C. Other catalysts may be selected from known vinyl polymerizing catalysts, such as organic oxidizing agents which contain the peroxide linkage O-O, and azo compounds.
The temperature and pressure conditions for making the polymers of the invention are not precisely limited, but for practical purposes are in the range of 20 to 150 C. at atmospheric pressure. The time for making the polymers of the invention can vary from a few minutes to several days," depending on the temperature and pressure, the yield sought, and the catalyst used, if any. The temperature for curing applied films of the polymer can range, for practical purposes, from 250 to 600 F., with the time of cure'varying inversely with the temperature. As the proportion of the above-mentioned component A is reduced, a higher temperature is necessary to thermoset the polymer in a given time period.
The polymers of the invention are preferably produced with the aid of a suitable solvent to lower the viscosity of the components as they polymerize and to obtain a good reaction producing a high yield of a uniform polymer, but 'the'solvent is not essential to the reaction. Any solvent may be selected which is a good common solvent for the reactants in their original state, and for the completed polymer, and which does not prevent or enter into the polymer-producing reaction. Examples ofsuch solvents are the following, including mixtures thereof: aromatic hydrocarbon solvents such as benzene, toluene and xylene, ethyl benzene, isopropyl benzene and commercial mixed aromatic hydrocarbon solvents (mixed with more active solvents when using lower molecular weight vinyl ether esters as component C); ether alcohols, such as ethylene glycol monobutyl ether, ethylene glycol monomethyl ether, ethylene glycol monoethyl ether, diethylene glycol monobutyl ether, diethylene glycol monornethyl ether, and diethylene glycol monoethyl ether; ketones, such as methyl ethyl ketone and methyl isobutyl ketone; and such solvents as cyclohexanone, diacetone alcohol, acetone, dimethyl formamide, ethyl acetate and butylpropionate.
Solvents suitable foruse with the polymers of the invention to make coating compositions are any of those mentioned in the preceding paragraph, and others selected from those suitable for vinyl polymers in general, e. g., isophorone. I have found that an important advantage of the use of higher molecular weight vinyl ethers as component C lies in the fact that they permit the. use of substantially larger proportions of aromatic hydrocarbon solvents in the solvent for purposes of forming coating compositions with desired qualities of viscosity and flow-outat given solids concentrations, than in the case when lower molecular weight vinyl ethers are used for component C. For example, the highest percentage concentration of any aromatic hydrocarbon solvent with isophorone for polymers with n-butyl vinyl ether as component C is about whereas as high as maybe used in such a solvent mixture with n-hexyl vinyl ether as component C. When thinned to the necessary degree with solvents such as those mentioned, the polymers of the invention may be applied by brushing, roller coating, spraying and other conventional means.
Illustrative examples of polymers embodying the invention are as follows:
EXAMPLE I A mixture of 9 parts by weight of glacial acrylicacid, 53 parts of distilled acrylonitrile, 100 parts of distilled nbutyl vinyl ether, 162 parts of methyl ethyl ketone and 2.46 parts of azodiisobutyronitrile are refluxedat 80 F. for 10 hours. An 76% yield of polymer is obtained, having a viscosity of 18 seconds at 24% total solids in methyl ethylketone at 80 F. in No. 4 Ford cup. The polymer produced consists of 7 mole percent of acrylic acid, 58 mole percent of acrylonitrile, and 35 mole percent of n-butyl vinyl ether.
EXAMPLE II A mixture of 25 parts by weight of glacial acrylic acid, 25 parts of distilled acrylonitrile, 50 parts of distilled n-butyl vinyl ether, 100 parts of methyl ethyl ketone, and 1.25 parts of azodiisobutyronitrile are refluxed at 80 F. for 24 hours. A 66% yield of polymer is obtained, having a viscosity of 16 seconds at 24% total solids in methyl ethyl ketone at 80 F. in #4 Ford cup. The polymer produced consists of 36 mole percent of acrylic acid, 48 mole percent of acrylonitrile, and 16 mole percent of nbutyl vinyl ether.
EXAMPLE III A mixture of 6.2 parts by weight of glacial acrylic acid, 36.5 parts of distilled acrylonitrile, 107.3 parts of distilled isooctyl vinylether, parts of methyl ethyl ketone, and 2.25 parts of azodiisobutyronitrile are refluxed at 80 F. for 24 hours. A 70% yield of polymer is obtained, having a viscosity of 16 seconds at 24% total solids in methyl ethyl ketone at 80 F. in #4 Ford cup. The polymer produced consists of 7 mole percent of acrylic acid,
- 59 mole percent of acrylonitrile, and 34 mole percent of isooctyl vinyl ether.
The excellent thermal stability of the polymers of the invention is illustrated by the fact that test coatings of the polymers of Examples I, II and III, applied without primer on blackplate, survive in good condition, as evidenced by substantially unchanged color, when baked for 24 hours at 400 F.
The following table shows the results of testing coatingsof the polymer of Example I, and also the results of like tests on other polymers consisting of only two of the three constituents of the Example I polymer, in order to indicate the importance of having all three constituents in the polymer.
